100% No.

The facelift model has a completely different front end to incorporate the newer LED headlamps and restyled features.

You should also be aware that there are MULTIPLE parts to the bumper assembly, apart from the actual exterior bumper that also may need replacing depending on damage. If there has been any impact, then you will also likely need the reinforcing parts behind the bumper like the shock absorber, bumper absorber, headlamp support sets, Bumper deflector, bumper trim, stone guard grille, etc. etc.

Of course it's a different matter if you were intending to replace all the lights and be aware that the bumper fixing support components behind are all different too for futire reference with all different part numbers which may be an issue if you later have to replace anything. There are subtle differences that you mayt not be aware of and most components have different part numbers, despite looking similar:
